there's a ton of the twist, but we're fresh out of shout

above the b.q.e. along the western edge of brooklyn heights, there's a place called the promenade (great sunset spot). if you follow it north to dumbo on a warm summer day you might find a flea market hiding under the bridges, or a very long line for pizza, or a farmers market, or an organic beef hot dog dressed up like bánh mì... but this is not where i had a hot dog in brooklyn this past friday, nope. that was in park slope, on bergen at "bark." i'm mentioning it here on the internet because while my dog/fries/glass of six point sweet action was good and all, i'm just trying to remind myself to go back and read that breakfast menu that i caught out of the corner of my eye.

skipping what happened between 7:30pm dinner and some 1:30am hours of operation confusion at momofuku's milk bar, dessert plan b happened on 14th street, well on the sidewalk, freshly deep fried, with powdered sugar on top for 2.50. it was all smiles.

morning means coffee. it would have been a very long walk to gorilla, and an even longer walk to grumpy, there was some stumptown nearby, but we have that in philly. so the skate shop/coffee window with "mud" got my money, and i liked it. next time around i'm gonna track down a cafe with intelligentsia. not for any real reason, just a brief comment from mike and it's at the top of my caffeine to do list.

now some pictures of food:
